  4. The Bidding Process
    1. Once you have successfully registered and activated your account you may take part in any auction subject to these terms and conditions and any further condition or restriction listed within each auction itself.
    2. In order to bid you will have to purchase bids; payment of these bids may be made through your credit/ debit card via PayPal. Should your payment not be honoured we will charge a return payment fee and you will be responsible for these fees.

      We do not accept responsibility for any direct or indirect damages or consequential losses suffered by use of fraudulent or unauthorised credit/ debit cards and we exclude liability for the same to the fullest extent possible by law.

    3. In order to bid you must select the reverse auction price of your choice from the prices available, enter your bid – which should reflect what you think is the lowest unique bid – and then click on the box marked “bid”. The bid fee will be deducted from your bids. You can review your account when bids have been placed but once a bid has been made it cannot be withdrawn.
    4. Bids only become valid when they are entered into our database and registered into our system. We are not responsible for disruptions in your connection and any errors that may occur because of this. This includes but is not limited to, non-browser response from your PC or connection failures, outdated software on your computer and/or connection interference between your computer and our servers.
    5. All bids are sealed and will only be made public following the end of an auction. The results will appear on our site within 72 hours of the end of the auction and we will disclose the username of each winning bidder on our site. Winning bidders of certain auctions, such as those with a high ticket value, may be requested to take part in a handover/ or promotional activities that may require the taking of pictures/ videos and used for our own promotional activities.
    6. Once the pre-determined maximum number of bids (“Bid Threshold”) for the relevant item has been reached or period of days has been passed (such period will be subject to the individual item), the auction will automatically close. The bidder with the lowest unique bid will win the auction and will receive notification of their win via email and/ or text.
    7. What is the lowest unique bid?

      No. Of Bids - Value

      15 bids- 1:10 Euro

      2 bids- 2:20 Euro

      1 bids - 3:50 Euro

      14 bids - 4:10 Euro

      20 bids - 5:80 Euro

      In this example 3 Euro is the lowest unique bid with only one person having placed that bid. If there is no lowest bid then the prize will be offered to the first bidder in the group of the lowest bid with the fewest number of bids. Again using the same example the first person to have bid 2 Euro would be the winner. Although 1 Euro is the lowest value it does not have the fewest bidders. The first bidder will be determined by the time at which the bid was entered into our database and registered into our system. Our decision to who is the first bidder is final.

    8. If the bid threshold is not reached within the specified days of the auction commencing, we may at our discretion, where the number of bids is equal to or more than 75% of the “Bid Threshold” (or such percentage as we in our absolute discretion deem appropriate) may either (a) award the item to the bidder with the lowest unique bid at that point; or (b) where there is no unique lowest bid, offer the item to the first placed lowest bid with the fewest amount of bids as explained above (e.g. referring to the example above, the first bid placed on the lowest amount (2 Euro) with only 2 bids); Where the number of bids is less than 75% of the “Bid Threshold” we may at our discretion either (a) award a cash prize (“Cash Prize” will be a percentage determined by us depending on the value of bids received at that time for the auction in question) to the bidder with the lowest unique bid at that point; or (b) where there is no lowest unique bid, offer the “Cash Prize” to the first placed lowest bid with the fewest amount of bids as explained above (e.g. referring to the example above, the first bid placed on the lowest amount (2 Euro) with only 2 bids)
    9. The winning bidder will be requested to respond within 14 days of the date the email and/or text notification was sent from us to confirm acceptance of their prize. The winning bidder will not be required to pay any further monies upon winning the auction including the winning figure that represents the lowest unique bid. There is no cash alternative available. If you choose not to accept the prize it will be offered to the next lowest unique bid. All unsuccessful bidders will receive a notification email and/or text message to this effect and by registering with our site you consent to receiving such notifications.
